Spin Doctors
The Spin Doctors started out as four 20-something-year-old guys in New York. Band members include Chris Barron (vocals). Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass).   In 1992 they released Pocket Full of Kyptonite that produced the two monster hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes.” The Spin Doctors became an overnight sensation, selling millions of albums around the world. Their second album, 1994’s Turn It Upside Down, featured the single, “You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast.” The band released another album before disbanding in 1999. The band reunited for a series of shows in 2001 and 2002, and they used that momentum to head back into the studio, where they recorded Nice Talking to Me which was released in 2005. Over the next few years, the Spin Doctors toured semi-regularly, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pocket Full of Kryptonite in 2011 with a deluxe edition and a supporting tour. The Spin Doctors regrouped in 2013 for their first album in eight years, the all-blues If the River Was Whiskey.

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Cherry Poppin’ Daddies became a popular act during the swing revival of the late 1990s although the eight-piece band had formed one decade prior in Eugene, Oregon. The current line-include original members Steve Perry (performing under the mad scientist stage persona of “MC Large Drink”) on lead vocals, bassist Dan Schmid and trumpeter Dana Heitman. The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies broke into the musical mainstream with their 1997 swing compilation Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. Released at the onset of the late 1990s swing revival, the album went on to sell over two million copies in the United States while its eponymous single became a radio hit. The Daddies have been debuting songs on tour from an upcoming (late 2015) album that will be called The Boop-A-Doo. Cherry Poppin’ Daddies has always prided itself on its craft and musicianship that have allowed them to excel in whatever format they choose to tackle.

Theory of a Deadman to Perform Free Concert at Fremont Street Experience
Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series Continues July 18

 
Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman will perform a free concert during Fremont Street Experience’s Rock of Vegas summer concert series on Saturday, July 18 at 9 p.m. at the 1st Street Stage. Celebrating its seventh season, the free concerts have become one of the most popular summertime events in Las Vegas. This year’s lineup will turn the legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue into summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that have taken music to the edge.

Theory of a Deadman
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet, Theory of a Deadman, builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. The band consists of Tyler Connolly [Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar], David Brenner [Rhythm Guitar], Dean Back [Bass], and Joey Dandeneau [Drums]. The band solidified their place at the top of modern hard rock by exceeding Platinum sales with their breakthrough album Scars & Souvenirs and with #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit “Bad Girlfriend.” At the same time, other singles, “So Happy” and “By The Way,” became crowd favorites on tours with notable bands from Mötley Crüe and Godsmack to Daughtry and label mates Stone Sour. In the middle of 2013, the platinum-selling Canadian quartet began working on what would become its fifth full-length album, Savages. The first single “Drown” ebbs and flows between a staggering wall of distortion and an infectious chorus from Connolly. The single has become one of the group’s biggest anthems that they continue to rock out on tour.
